The JBL Duet 2.0 Computer Speakers will meet the needs or most people just looking for inexpensive little speakers to connect to their computers. A good couple steps above the on-board speakers of a laptop but more than that they are not.
Easy to use, a simple volume pot on the front, that some users have had issues with, with a power cable and connecting stereo cable. Very minimal. Not even a headphone jack.
But with 6 watts per channel and JBL’s patent-pending Phoenix TSR (Tangential Strain Relief) drivers, these simple computer speakers will deliver more bass and lower distortion than similar-sized computer speakers.
Their one weak spot appears to be iffy shielding. The Duet 2.0 can give a fair amount of feed back if a cell phone is near by or similar wifi/cellular type of devices are near by. But not all users have had issue and it is more likely user set up than inconstant manufacturing.
